You won't have to get out of your pyjamas to attend the NewRoads Girls Night Out this year.

The pyjama party theme means you can wear your coziest bedtime outfit to the annual event hosted by NewRoads Automotive Group to mark International Women's Day by bringing women in the community together for an evening that focuses on female leaders sharing advice on leadership, life and achieving career goals. 

The March 7 night out in Newmarket will again support Girls Inc. of York Region, a non-profit youth organization dedicated to empowering girls ages six to 18.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Barb Wallace, executive director of Girls Inc. of York Region. “When you don’t have to dress up and wear heels, it makes it that much more relaxed to have a good time.”

“It’s a really great event and we’ll be celebrating International Women’s Day,” said Wallace. “The focus this year is on self-care and mental health.”

Wallace said it’s a perfect opportunity to support other women in the community while learning some valuable lessons. 

“There’s going to be an opportunity for women to share advice that they would give to their younger self,” added Wallace.

The keynote speaker is Zoë Paliare, a transformational coach and entrepreneur who helps people achieve their greatest potential.

Paliare works with clients to help them break through limiting beliefs that hold them back. 

Wallace said having an expert talk about achieving goals goes hand and hand with the theme of self-care.

“She’s going to talk about the importance of wellness and taking time for yourself,” said Wallace. “It’s going to focus on those positive messages for women.”

The event will also have a vendors market led by local women vendors and Girls Inc. will also be sharing what the organization does with the women in attendance.

Wallace said the event is incredibly important because it’s women and girls of different backgrounds and age groups coming together to support each other.

“It also motivates women to get involved with volunteer opportunities and to mentor,” she said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to fill our pipeline and raise awareness about who we are and what we do while sharing positive messages.”

NewRoads Girls Night Out is March 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. at NewRoads Performing Arts Centre, 505 Pickering Cres. Buy tickets here and learn more about Girls Inc. here.
